To make Apple Pie Moonshine at home, you obviously need Moonshine! This could be purchased from a legal moonshine distiller, or you can make it yourself (Click here to learn how).

It’s history:
Apple Pie Moonshine (also known as apple cinnamon moonshine) is a part of our heritage and one of the most famous drinks in North America. Both apples and moonshine existed before the birth of the United States. Not only that, but during prohibition moonshiners secretly ran their stills in the woods and apples were an easy and cheap source of food. It’s no wonder why this is such a popular drink.


  • 1 gallon Apple Juice
  • 1 gallon Apple Cider
